Yesterday saw the release of The Kid Who Would Be King DVD, as well as the Blu-ray version through Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. With a PG rating, this is a wonderful family-friendly adventure that we’ve enjoyed watching.
The Kid Who Would Be King DVD mixes the myth of King Arthur and the Sword in the Stone, Excalibur with a modern day school setting. We meet Alex who tries to protect his best friend Bedders from the school bullies Lance and Kaye. Alex earns a detention when he fights back and after school, the bullies chase him into a construction site, and that’s when the action really begins.
Alex discovers a sword and pulls it out of a pile of mud, not knowing that’s his awoken spirits from the past. Evil sorceress Morgana sends her minions of Mortes Milles to return the sword to her, whilst Merlin must help Alex fight against the evil she presents.
Alex and Bedders google the words they see inscribed on the sword and they learn what a treasure he has uncovered. Merlin arrives back in modern times at Stonehenge as a young boy and introduces himself to Alex as a new boy at school called Mertin.
It turns out the Alex has four days to destroy evil Morgana or she will enslave the whole of England. He must unite everyone at school and stand up against evil before the solar eclipse sees darkness take over the land. It’s going to be no mean feat as the rest of the school don’t believe in Alex or their fate. Could Alex believe in himself and help to bring everyone together?
